A Message From the Editor

We've got a lot of good reads in this week's lineup, especially if you're looking to brush up on the latest in compliance and regulatory issues. Meanwhile, open enrollment is just around the corner, and given all of the events of the past year, employees are bound to have a lot of questions! Join us next Tuesday for an Open Enrollment Twitter chat as we address the key issues and tips for making this year's enrollment a success.
